Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has ruled out a return to the English Premier League this January as reports of interest in him from West Ham and Stoke City intensifies.
The former Sunderland forward has been touted as a potential solution to strugglers West Ham and Stoke City’s goal scoring problems but he insist his primary interest is to see Al Ain through the season and decide what happens after the world cup.
“There are a lot of offers but I don’t really know. I have to finish with the World Cup in the summer and I will see whether I am still staying Al Ain or not but I’m still happy in Al Ain,” Gyan said.
“I don’t want to move in January. I just want to concentrate on playing for the club, we are in a bad situation at the moment and one of the important players cannot leave just like that, it is not a good thing.”
Gyan has not scored for Al Ain in three games, his longest spell since arriving in the UAE in September 2011while his club have won only once in their last six games. His top priority is to see Al Ain through their present difficulties.
I am not even thinking about leaving the club, I want to achieve something big here and we will sit down [after the World Cup] and see what happens.
“Definitely if you are doing well you will be attractive to teams. Teams are coming all right but I’m still focused on Al Ain and I will make sure we overcome this situation.”
